Helen Mirren stars as Queen Elizabeth II

After wowing on London's West End, and winning Mirren an Olivier to add to her Academy Award for playing Queen Elizabeth II, she dons the crown once again to bring The Audience to Broadway. Directed by Stephen Daldry and written by Peter Morgan, this luminous play imagines the content of the private weekly meetings between Her Majesty and the Prime Minister of the day, leading to some very interesting observations...

A peek behind closed doors

Beginning in 1952 at her ascension to the throne, these conversations have been kept secret, with each party observing an unspoken agreement to never divulge the contents, even to their nearest & dearest. From providing counsel to teasing, agreements to arguments, The Audience is the chance to see inside the upper echelons of power and experience recent British history as you've never seen it before.

This will be Helen Mirren's first appearance on the American stage in 12 years, since her Tony nominated performance in 2002's Dance of Death.
